Hi everyone. I would like to wish all the readers a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Here is the photo of the gingerbread house I made. This is my first attempt that came out pretty good. I followed the recipe for gingerbread men and glued them together with royal icing.
There are 6 pieces : 2 parts for the roof, 2 parts for the sides and 2 parts for the front and back part of the house.
Cut out templates for the house using cardboard and assemble them to make sure that the dimensions are right. Cut out the dough using the templates and bake the house parts.Cool the parts and use royal icing to glue them .Hold the pieces together till the icing hardens (you can also use small cans or cups or fruits to hold the wall up till it sets. Use decorations of your choice. Have used M&Ms, candy canes and baked balls of gingerbread dough.
Enjoy the holiday season with your loved ones.
